The Salvation Army has met its goal in providing Thanksgiving dinners to local families in need this year. Now the focus turns to assisting families for the winter holiday season.
Major Patricia Kurtz is proud of the local response for the annual Turkey March.
“it seems this year we’re running a little ahead with the number of requests we’re getting," Jurtz said. "But the nice thing is that we’re also seeing a big influx in the number of donors and folks who are willing to pitch in this year.”
Kurtz says the Salvation Army accepts all kinds of holiday food, not just turkeys. It will continue to accept donations of food -- and money -- through the holiday season at 529 East Main Street Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
